I don't know why but there must be a medical condition that keeps making me undertake motorcycle re-build projects ... and I have withdrawal symptoms!!

So I'm looking for a cheap project please.  Small block Guzzi or anything interesting with one cylinder (eg. trail bike, MZ Skorpion, Sachs 650 Roadster, etc).

The nearer to Gloucester the better.

What could be better than this?!
I keep looking at it and wondering whether to give it a home..

Has bags of potential :-) For a similar price I have been looking at this:-

The Monza's a lot classier. Depends what you want it for I guess but the Monza is a good bike to ride, got great looks, sounds like a Guzzi and will have a better long term value. All my opinion of course! Smile

Yes I've always liked the Monza.  Problem is that I think the refurb cost could never be recovered.  What's a mint Monza worth?

the old guzzis are great but the 750 breva is a unsung gem that I could see being turned into something special looks wise

Do you fancy a Gilera Nordwest?  1993, 558cc single, the granddaddy of Supermotards, all there but needs putting back together, comes with some spares.
Or if you're into trials, a Bultaco Sherpa 250 '72/73 ish , both bikes need to have a new home and I need the room (the money is always welcome too )
